Transformation In Digital Dentistry
3D printing has taken the field of Dentistry by storm. This additive manufacturing technology has gained enormous popularity due to its many advantages, especially the ability to produce highly personalized prosthesis with minimum wastage.
Today it is an integral part of digital dentistry curriculum. It has revolutionized the dental education system for undergraduate students and more so, for specialists working towards providing advanced tertiary rehabilitation services to the patients. The sales of 3D printing have skyrocketed, indicating its quick evolution and demand for mass customization.
High accuracy in getting a 3D replica of every patient’s dentition is helping in creating a custom made, highly precise dental prosthesis. This indeed is a boon to the clinician and the dental labs because it is not only cost-effective and time-efficient but efficiently modifies an ill-fitting 3D prosthesis just with an injection molding!
Keeping up with the latest developments in Dentistry is indeed given the clinician an edge over his competitors. The new digital dentistry curriculum engages you in a whole new world of Oral Digital Imaging, 3D printing, Laser Dentistry, Tele-dentistry using video chats for consulting the dentist, Cloud storage and back-up in dental practice, Smart toothbrush, Bioprinting and lots more!
